PostSubject: Re-application (I've got some useful skills now).   Tue Jul 08, 2014 9:18 am

I'm Siebren, 14 years old.
I've decided to do a re-application because I have some useful skills now.

I have teached myself Blender and learned Html.
I'm currently busy with CSS, Javascript and Lua.

I hereby ask if I can be added to the developers group.

Also, I have summer-vacation, so I have plenty of time.  :D 

(note: This was done in the last few days, so I won't be very fast.)

Aww Belguim yeah! Thrive inspires yet another person to learn some cool skills. You're as old as I was when I first started learning to code, more or less the perfect age to pick up coding.

I'd say focus on the Lua, cuz I'm a programmer and I want more programmers, but an HTML/CSS/JS/JQuery core is definitely a good starting point with easy-to-see results. What learning resources are you using? To help with learning Lua, I'll take a look through the code and see what parts are easy to mod. I love teaching people things, especially programming, so if you want someone who's still young enough to remember the problems they had learning to code, I'm here, ask me anything.

I could do a little Python since I was 12.
A little younger than you.

I'm first going to see for myself.
If I have any problems, then I will gladly ask (which will most likely not happen).

Even better!

What OS do you use? I'd guess Windows, considering that's the one our latest releases have been on. When you're a little more comfortable fiddling with the game, we (well, crovea if you're on Windows, since all my experience is on Linux) will help you get a development version set up (a fork on gitHub, learning some git, and getting it compiling), and you can start solving issues :D!

Not too fast, I first have to understand: Lua, ogre and maybe Java.
Although I plan on finishing all within 1,5 weeks.

You'll only need to understand Ogre beforehand if you're writing c++, and Java we don't use at all, so I'm guessing it's part of your own learning plan. Java's definitely not a language you could learn to use effectively in a few days though, but I'd guess you already know that

I'm not gonna push you to be ready super-fast though -- if anything I'd prefer to put off getting the dev environment set up, since it can be a royal pain to get working.

Sorry, mixed them up...  :oops: 
Oh well, I already now a very small amount of C++ and I have a friend that knows it, so I will be alright in that.  ;)

Trust me, you won't. You'll be able to read the code, and understand, usually, what it's doing, but writing good C++ takes a lot of practice. I find it's much better to approach C++ with the assumption that you'll do things wrong, since there are many intricacies to it. But that's fine -- it's far more important to be able to read code than write it.

Well, I guess I will have a few nasty surprises waiting then.
But I will finish CSS and JS first because I'm pretty far with those.
